It has been three weeks since Mahanati got released and the film is still going super strong at the box office. Makers are on cloud nine and have held several success meets as well. They have met AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu today who honored them for making a cult movie.
Chandrababu Naidu hosted an event for team Mahanati at Amaravathi and went on to heap praises on the cast and crew. He stated that the AP Government will exempt SGST component of GST imposed on movie collections. Apparently, it is the first film to get tax exemption in Andhra Pradesh after the implementation of GST.
The Chief Minister went on and appreciated director Nag Ashwin and producer Swapna Dutt and Priyanka Dutt for spending 2 years on research. He praised Keerthy Suresh for spell bounding performance and quoted that the actress exactly resembles the face and life of the Mahanati.
